#HowTu: 6 Luxe Staples You'll Wear Season After Season

Sponsored by Tu

The fash pack loves to make a statement. From bold prints to stand-out shapes, for the past few seasons the runway style mantra has definitely been "more is more".

Now there's a change in the air. Alongside the winter chill, we're starting to see a style revolt, with designers from Marni to Vetements channelling a more muted mood. Think modern twists on classic cuts, and luxe fabrics that will see you from season to season. It's minimalism, but not as you know it.

Ready to meet your new wear-everywhere wardrobe? We've teamed up with Tu and picked out 6 buys that will work this winter and beyond. Get your inspo below, then click to shop the looks straight from the shoot.

The classic coat

First things first – when it comes to creating your capsule wardrobe, a classic coat is pretty much the only place to start. A cream cocoon style like this ticks all the boxes, with luxe boucle fabric and an elegant colour, as well as on-trend oversized shape to keep things up to date. Wear for evening over your favourite dress – it is party season, after all – or layer over a rollneck for brunch with friends.

Coat, £50

The metallic tee

If you thought minimal dressing meant wearing all black, think again. This metallic tee is about to change your life... or at least your look. A flash of gold looks great with neutral shades, and if you're worried about going too glitzy, a slouchy cut keeps things contemporary. As for embellishment, leave it at home this time – when it comes to this look, simplicity is totally key.

Top, £22

The tailored trouser

The perfect tailored trousers can be hard to hunt down, but trust us when we say that once you find them, you won't know how you got dressed without them. We love the cropped cut and sleek shape of this grey pair, with bonus trend points for their sportswear inspired drawstring detail. Wear them contrasted with a minimal white trainer or barely-there sandals.

Trousers, £22

The knitted two piece

Balenciaga's co-ords were a runway stand-out this AW16, and now we can finally channel the look in our own wardrobes. This soft grey wool will work season after season, not to mention keep out the cold. Style together for the office – just add earrings and heels – or pair the knit with relaxed trousers come the weekend.

Jumper, £25; skirt, £22

The leather biker

No modern woman's wardrobe is complete without a leather jacket, and if you haven't got one already, there's never been a better time to invest. This classic panel detail biker is buttery soft and will add edge to any look – from jeans and tee to this season's velvet slip dress. Feeling the cold? Layer your coat on top, as seen on the streets this Fashion Week.

The sleek skirt

Nailing the capsule wardrobe is all about finding those pieces that can do double duty – that's where the leather pencil comes in. Whether styled with a pie-crust blouse or this season's skate tee, this sleek shape has got day and night covered. Better still, it works with tights too, so keeping cosy doesn't have to mean sacrificing chic.

Jacket, £95; skirt, £50
